alot of spear houses line the northern shore by the public access.. if you look out east further those are houses chasing sunnies and crapples on the flats.. I used to have a cabin there a few yrs ago so I know the routine.. lol

Went out there last night, sat from 400 in the afternoon till 1030 at night. Caught maybe 25 crappies, they were all real small. Not big enough to eat all were thrown back to grow. Pretty busy out there though.

Any new news on Suak Lake since the 1st? How thick is the ICE? Fishing report at all? We have a cabin on the lake and are first time Ice-Fishermen. We have the case of beer. And are set to go \:\) Any help would be appreciated.

A member of my family is out almost every day, and there aint much going on, but then again we are fishing for walleyes. I have heard that the crappies are bitting but there is no size to them.

      As far as I'm aware, the two main spawning spots are the Pike River on the east end and Black Lake on the west end. That said I think that walleye are probably spawning in many different areas around the lake. IMO it's kind of fun to look for those hidden gem areas.

      Information about chronic wasting disease and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ management response to its discovery in two deer near Lanesboro will be the focus of a public meeting from 7-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 15, at the Fillmore Central School Auditorium, 702 Chatfield St., in Preston.  DNR staff will explain the disease and why a quick and aggressive response is the most effective way to limit its spread. They also will discuss response measures including establishment of a disease management zone, a special winter deer hunt, landowner shooting permits and the necessity to conduct an aerial deer population survey. Representatives from other state agencies and deer hunting groups also will be available to answer questions. Chronic wasting disease is a fatal brain disease to deer, elk and moose but is not known to affect human health. Prior to this discovery, the disease has only been found in Minnesota in one wild deer harvested near Pine Island in 2010. For more information, including maps of chronic wasting disease surveillance areas, common questions and answers and hunter information, visit the DNR’s CWD homepage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.
